Product designed to utilize any surface into a digital whiteboard
Epson today introduced the BrightLink Pro 1410Wi -- an ultra-short-throw meeting room projector designed to provide increased organizational productivity and efficiency. The BrightLink Pro turns a traditional whiteboard, wall or virtually any flat surface into a new digital surface and offers a variety of features to boost meeting room collaboration, including video conferencing compatibility and remote collaboration.
Users can power BrightLink Pro on and present, annotate and capture with no technical expertise needed to drive a collaborative instant meeting. With a 100-inch, widescreen display area, users can display presentations and a live meeting at the same time with the split screen option. In addition, users can connect up to four BrightLink Pro units that all reside on the same network, regardless of location, for remote collaboration.
The BrightLink Pro comes with a control pad, which acts as a convenient USB hub, an extension to USB ports or as a remote control unit. Meeting participants can use the control pad to connect to USB thumb drive, a PC or printer. To further streamline meetings, it also offers buttons to power the BrightLink Pro on and off, and to select major functions, including Whiteboard Mode, Source Search, Capture, Print, or Save.
The Epson BrightLink 1410Wi projector will be available in April through resellers starting at $2,999. Epson's projectors come with a two-year limited warranty that includes Epson PrivateLine phone support and a two-year projector replacement program.
